It is only a few weeks since the end of our 1999 annual meeting in
Dallas, and already we are in the planning stages for the 2ooo meeting,
which will be held in Austin March 2-4. We had wonderful attendance
at the Dallas meeting, the sessions were packed with interested listeners,
and our auctions and book sales went very well indeed. No doubt the
year 2ooo meeting will also be a good one. Jackie McElhaney and her
program committee have pulled together a number of strong sessions
and will be meeting in May to finalize the program. As we move past Y2K
and on into 2ooo, please make a commitment to introduce a friend or
colleague to the TSHA. One of the best ways to do that is to bring them
along to an annual meeting where they can experience firsthand the
richness of Texas history, rub shoulders with the finest historians and
aficionados of Texana, and have a generally good time. Mark March 2-4
on your calendar and we'll see you in Austin.
The TSHA's president for 1999-2ooo is Norman D. Brown, one of
the finest Texas historians of his generation. Few people have con-
tributed as much as Norman has to the Association, and we will be
served well by this man of scholarly distinction and leadership. Widely
known and admired, Norman is a calm and authoritative presence. We
are pleased and honored to have him at the helm for the next year.
Born in 1935, Norman grew up in Duquesne, Pennsylvania, near
Pittsburgh, and in Kokomo, Indiana. He received his B.A. (summa cum
laude) from Indiana University, and his M.A. and Ph.D. degrees from
the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Since that time he has
been a fixture in the history department at the University of Texas at
Austin, starting as an instructor in 1962 and being named the Barbara
White Stuart Centennial Professor in Texas History in 1984, a chair that
he still holds.
From his undergraduate days until the present, Norman has been an
extremely active scholar, publishing numerous books, articles, television
scripts, encyclopedia entries, book reviews, and presenting many papers
and lectures. Among his books are: One of Cleburne's Command: The Civil
War Reminiscences and Diary of Captain Samuel T. Foster, Granbury's Texas
Brigade, CSA (University of Texas Press); Journey to Pleasant Hill: The Civil
War Letters of Captain Elijah P. Petty, Walker's Texas Division, CSA (Institute
of Texan Cultures); and Hood, Bonnet, and Little Brown fug: Texas Politics,
Here’s what’s next.
